There is a good chance that no PW member has recently purchased this particular piano. Not much point concerning yourself with the price at this point.

A piano ordered specially is likely to have less of a discount than one bought off the floor. Comparing prices may be deceptive because of that.

In any case, nothing is worse for the soul than shopping for something after you have bought it. Just enjoy the piano!

I'd be surprised if Bechstein sold 5 concert 8's worldwide in the last year. Just an uneducated guess though...

i played a bechstein academy series once and it was one of the best uprights sound wise i ever heard.. although ive played mainly asian uprights.. and a few schimmels and schulze pollmans.. that concert 8 is probably going to be out of this world.

Lord Blackmourne.. you wouldnt happen to live in southern california would you? i would love to here it played in person.

... and yet they order a new bechstein from the factory.

we had a guy who fessed up to hacking his brother's account and doing something similar about a year ago. did you decide to just create your own account this time?

How would we know your native language. Your profile is empty.

Using childish, and overly familiar, phrases with people you don't know -- "hey dude" -- won't endear you to many.

Going on the attack, "are you jealous," is a guarantee to bother people, even if you think you were provoked.

Oh, and having a thin skin like that is another way to get ignored very quickly.

Enjoy your piano when it arrives.

My point is that you cant have english as your first language if you type like me, and plays piano. If you cant figure that out you are not very smart.

dude is not childish its used IN VARIOUS AGE GROUPS... do you know anything? It was even made for and by adults.

"The word dude is an American English slang term generally used informally to address or refer to somebody and was once used primarily by adults but this has become a common slang term used in various age groups."

People dont use "are you jealous" because they are provoked. They use it to find out why you seemed to provoke someone a whole lot.

i dont have thin skin. You think people that defend them self have thin skin? That seems weird. It is the people that stand up for what is right that are the heroes. We are the ones that have the thickest skin of all.

If I'd had around 33,000€ to blow on an upright I would have tried out a Bluthner B and the new S, a Steingraeber 138, a Grotrian Concertino, a Bosendorfer and a Pfeiffer - but perhaps you did.

33,000 dollars, euros, or what??????

Just curious - why did you decide to spend so much on an upright as opposed to buying a grand? Space considerations?

Nevertheless, I'm sure it is a wonderful instrument !!

opps. Ofc I meant euros, my mistake. I just think grand pianos looks so ugly. I've always considered grand pianos to be fake and upright to be the real deal. But I did check out some grands but in the end i just hate them to much.

Upright is a more royal instrument and just plain better.

Wow. Congratulations! I've read thousands upon thousands of posts on PW over the last 6 years and this truly takes first prize as the most ridiculous post I've ever read here. It's obvious that you have more money than you know how to spend intelligently.
Or as it was suggested earlier, you're just a sock puppet having fun wasting people's time. If that's the case then hey, knock yourself out.
